Continental Divide Trail (CDT) Map

First post of the year! 2008 is quite a special year for me because back in 2000 when I left university, me and my mate Paul made a pact to do something this year… that something was to walk the Continental Divide Trail together. So for 8 years I’ve been looking forward to this time, but now I’m thinking that it’s come a bit soon and that I should of done a tad more preparation!

The Continental Divide Trail is 3000 odd mile walk from Mexico to Canada following the Rocky mountain ridge which forms the east to west watershed of the United States, it’ll take about 6 months to complete. The reason we choose it was purely because it was the longest walk we could find any information on, the reason we picked 2008 was because we had no money and thought by now we’d have all our student debt paid off and money in the bank!

We’re due to set off in about 4 months, got loads of planning to do first… should be an exciting year though :)

  3. Cookie have you read On the Road by jack kerouac?

    I read it over the holidays and I highly recommend this amazing classic before you leave or during the trip.

    Happy new year! we should get things done before you shoot off!


  4. Not really done anything about yet, but it’s on my to-do list! Thinking about approaching a toilet roll manufacturer, pooview is still my favourite angle.

  5. Give me a shout when you plan to do the 6,875-mile Great Western Loop, Cookie. The John Muir Trail was fun, my blisters are all but gone, and I could do with losing the weight. ;)

    In all seriousness, the Continental Divide looks amazing. How’s the sponsorship thing going?
